based upon the bart [speaker not understood] fare policy and that being renewed anticipated this year some time. >> right. so, the fast pass agreement, what are we paying them right now? >> currently for fiscal year 2012, the contract value under the current rate of $1.02 is $7.9 million and under the proposed rate it would be $9.2 million. >> and prior years in terms of reserving, i'm imagining reserve again in your budgets, it was at 102? >> it was at $1.2, correct. >> and, so, we have before us a proposal to retroactively increase it? * >> retroactively going back to january 2010, correct. so, the june -- in july -- at 2009 bart implemented their fare increase. the last fast pass agreement expired at the end of 2009. so, it would be -- this retroactivity would take place six months after the fare increase that this would compare to. >> thanks. i don't get why we do this, but let's keep going. >> okay. >> mr. lee, can i say mr. rifkin pointed out that 2020 for the feeder agreement, the contract expense of that, this one would extend only to 2014 because we're trying to max
. >> i apologize for that. so, we have two agreements of fast past agreement in which we pay bart for people using the adult fast pass within san francisco. we pay on the per-trip basis. and the feeder agreement, bart pays us based on our provision of services to and from their stations. historically the fast pass agreement has been based on the fixed discount rate off the regular bart ticket. so, for example, the last agreement gave about a 32% discount, the reimbursement rate was probably 32% less than the price of the full fare ticket. and per the bart board fare policy which has been in place over 10 years at this point, the bart board regularly increases fares every two years at a rate consistent with cpi less half a percent for productivity improvements. with this fare policy in place over the last decade, there has been -- there have been occasions when the fare has actually increased faster than the rate of inflation. for example, as identified by the budget and legislative analyst in 2011, fares from 2006 to 2011 increased at a cumulative 40% rate or 7% annualized rate. t
we're basing them, again -- we have a difference of opinion. we're basing them on bart fare increases which have been, again, they're increasing -- they're getting a retroactive increase of 1.3, $1.4 million. we're getting retroactive increase of $75,000. that to me doesn't seem equitable. similar to what supervisor campos said, i don't feel comfortable saying this is a good deal for us and this is something we should be doing retroactively increasing their values. aside from the go forward stuff that i think we focus on quite a bit as well. >> i guess i'll adi hear what you're saying. * many [speaker not understood]. that's what these agreements are about. and i think we don't look at this as we'll see what we can squeeze out of bart or bart is looking at what can we skis out of mta. we're really looking at what makes the most sense. especially to facilitate the connections between the two systems. so, i don't look at it as the muni riders are subsidizing the bart riders somehow. this is really about the riders that are moving between the two systems. and it's something we want to en
this is simply to correct the formula for the bart payment increases from 12-13 through 19-20. we also recommend that you amend the proposed resolution required that the proposed feeder agreement be revised to include the floor, as i mentioned, but no more than 5% on decreases in payments. these would be annual payments from bart to sfmta and then we recommend that you approve that resolution as amended. regarding the fast pass agreement, 12 11 87, we recommend you amend the resolution to impose to reduce the cap from 14 million to 10.5 million for a reduction of 3.5 million. and then i would also point out that we did not recommend approval of that agreement. we say that approval is a policy matter as amended. >> thank you, mr. rose. and a few questions the clerk and city attorney understand that the file has already reflected the revised formula for corrected payment so we do not need to make that amendment ; is that correct? >> that's correct. >> okay. and, mr. rose, just in thinking about this, putting a 5% floor since the contract is based upon a cpi, assuming a 5% deflationa
as the director of the sfmta and right before my counterpart at bart [speaker not understood] started her tenure as the general manager there. at that time there were some concerns raised by the budget and finance committee and sent it to agencies back with some direction in terms of what they wanted to see including bringing both of these agreements together and then some specific provisions or at least guidance. when grace and i first assumed our respective duties in late 2011, we got together and this was one of the first things we talked about because even at that time these agreements were in arrears, what were past expiration. the two agencies were withholding payment from each other and we decided as the new kid on the block that we needed to get together, take heed of what the message and direction we got was from the board of supervisors and get these agreements done so that we can move forward. we fairly quickly were able to come to agreement in principle on the shape of these two agreements. and while i recognize and appreciate the intent of the board of supervisors to hear these two
